Not ’significant’: Virginia governor downplays slavery
By Daniel Tencer
Wednesday, April 7th, 2010 -- 1:45 pm

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is being accused of historical revisionism after reinstating the state's controversial Confederate History Month and declaring that the event won't focus on slavery because the issue is not "significant" enough in Virginia.

"There were any number of aspects" to the Civil War, McDonnell said, explaining why he left slavery out of the proclamation announcing Confederate History Month. "Obviously, it involved slavery. It involved other issues. But I focused on the ones I thought were most significant for Virginia."
...

RAW

Fair play!

McDonnell should invite Vice President Biden to the event:
  • Biden attended a rotary luncheon where he bragged about his state's pro-slavery history:

    Delaware, he noted, was a “slave state that fought beside the North. That’s only because we couldn’t figure out how to get to the South. There were a couple of states in the way.”

Maybe Biden could bring along Bill Clinton, who said in exasperation when Obama was handed the nomination over Hilary:
"A few years ago, he would have been getting us coffee"

Yeah, there's so much room for RAW and other liberals to label conservatives as racist. After all, there's absolutely nothing racist in the words and actions of liberal Democrats...

You'll notice that what I posted didn't try to label the action as racist but just what happened WB.

Fair play!

Right. You didn't come out and say it.
You just strongly implied it.


There is deep irony in any liberal accusing a conservative of revisionism. Whether Woodrow Wilson, FDR, or the 60s revolution, that is what liberalism is all about. Painting our nation's history through revisionism as an evil and racist place, undermining nationalism to make the new generation of Americans open to moving our nation in a socialist/globalist direction.

Again, best explained by Pat Buchanan in either his DEATH OF THE WEST book, or his more recent DAY OF RECKONING.

Then, presumably, you don't think the action was racist and, therefore, don't object to it.

How so? It appears that you came to that conclusion with no implications.

So because you have these feelings towards liberalism that somehow makes this ok?

Fair play!
